"Of warmer things there are some interiors that are heartening. A Country Interior and A Country Sitting Room... I like either of these rooms quite as much as anything Henry Ford could recreate of the period of my great-great.'


Springfield Daily Republican, Springfield, Mass., Sat. April 28, 1928

".....a sunny country sitting room well kept by a lover of books and bric-a-brac...."


This painting remains in the artist's estate.


A Red Cross in the window indicates that this family has already made a donation to the red cross organization.

Another vantage point of the room is found in its sister A Country Interior. On the lower left portion of the painting you can see the plants and table of A Country Sitting Room.
